Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Forskolin is a trending topic right now since it's being touted as a weight loss tool (with no evidence). Forskolin is from the mint plant.
As to it's affect on the kidneys (or side effects in general) -there really aren't any studies on this. If you have kidney problems, talk to your doctor before taking it. There are no studies that show any real benefit to taking Forskolin so it's not something one has to take, especially if there is the potential for side effects.
Best,
Susan
